GTGB & The Pandemic

While the pandemic may have changed the 2020-21 school year for the foreseeable future, Give Thanks Give Back WUSTL is committed to continuing its fall gift drive tradition, especially during such a challenging period for so many STL families. While the process of sponsorship will remain the same, we are unable to hold our end-of-semester gift wrapping party.

Sign up links are available in our site menu and down below. We encourage participants to wrap their presents before dropping them off!



About GTGB

Give Thanks Give Back has been a full-fledged annual gift drive at Washington University in St. Louis since 2001. We support 100 Neediest Cases (a joint project of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and the United Way), which runs a holiday gift drive to benefit the poorest families in St. Louis. 100 Neediest Cases identifies over 10,000 cases of area residents struggling to overcome poverty during the holiday season. Check out all the ways you and your group can work with us!
